2024 - 2026 New In Colors & Bright Skies Stamp Set - Global Stampin' Video Hop May 2024 - Stampin' Up!

It is time for another tutorial for the Global Stampin’ Video Hop on YouTube. Each month on the fourth Friday Stampin’ Up Demonstrators from around the world come together and share their projects based on a monthly theme. May’s Theme is to create a project with the New 2024 – 2026 In Colors. I am so excited to see what everyone creates this month, make sure to watch my video below and then jump around and see them all.

The New 2024 – 2026 In Colors are: Peach Pie, Pretty In Pink, Shy Shamrock, Summer Splash, Petunia Pop. I love them all so much that I couldn’t just use one, so I used them all in the cute card. I kept things really simple with Stamps, Ink & Paper. The stamp set I used is Bright Skies and has a coordinating set of dies, Bright Skies Dies.

I hope you are inspired today as you see all the In Color Themed Projects from everyone while jumping from video to video. If you are inspired to make a project from something you see today please share it with us, we would love to see what you come up with. You can tag me @creativechelsey in any social media post.

Creative & Company Team Showcase - Amy Novicki

I am so excited to introduce Amy Novicki as my Creative & Company Team Showcase Stamper for this month. She wanted to work with the Adventurous Sky Bundle, which includes the stamps set & coordinating Adventurous Sky Dies.  These images are perfect for Father's Day and any other time of the year.

I love the cards she created and am excited to share them with you here. 

For her first card she designed a thank you or anniversary card. She used Blender Pens on the New Basic Beige Cardstock.  The beige background works so well for a masculine card like this.  She also used the coordinating Take To The Sky Designer Series Paper, which inspired her to use this fun sentiment from the Thoughtful Expressions Stamp Set, "Where in the world would I be without you?" I think it works so well as the sentiment for this card!

For her second card she made the background by adding two colors of ink to a Clear Block size E. Then spritzed it with a bit of water and stamped it on Watercolor Cardstock. She has a great tip to keeping the edges clean - Put Washi Tape around the edges before stamping the ink to the paper. Give this technique a try on your next card. The plane is colored with Blender Pens on Basic White Cardstock.  

I love how she kept her third design very simple with Stamps, Ink, & Paper. I love the stamped clouds in the background and the repeated planes in three different colors. The sentiment is from an online exclusive stamp set Sweetly Scripted. You can try this layout with so many different images!

For her fourth card she used the Brayer to ink up the So Swirly Embossing Folder before embossing the cardstock, which gives this amazing look to the background. I love how adding ink really makes the embossed pattern pop. 

For Amy's last card she wanted to use the coordinating Take To The Sky Designer Series Paper in the fun layout. I love how the layout creates a base for the focal point bringing attention to both the map and the plane. When creating the Plane in Dies she used the Textured Metallic Specialty Paper for the accent pieces. It looks so great!

Thanks so much Amy for these beautiful cards you made. They give us great inspiration for fun new ways to use the Adventurous Sky Bundle. 

Here are some of the products Amy used to create her cards. (this is not a full supply list)

Creation Station Blog Hop - Up In The Air

Welcome to the Creation Station Blog Hop, where this month we are creating project with an "Up In The Air" theme. 

If you’ve hopped over from the fabulous Mikaela Titheridge over at, hello, I am so happy you are here.

If you are just starting this blog hop you can begin here and then click on the next link at the bottom.

I was really excited for this month's theme as I love the Hot Air Balloon Stamp Set & Coordinating Hot Air Balloon Dies. 

For this card I wanted to use a simple watercolor wash technique for the sky. I used Azure Afternoon Ink and a Water Painter on Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper. I love how this paper gives the perfect watercolor look every time. I always like to start with clean water first and then add the ink randomly to give it areas of light and dark.

For the sky I also wanted to include some clouds that would fade a little in the background. To achieve this look I added a little ombre blending technique on Basic White Cardstock with Azure Afternoon ink and cut out multiple clouds. Because the blending goes from light to dark I was able to get some clouds with different ombre looks and I love how they each are different and when layered together look great. 

To finish the card I added stamped and die cut balloons in Fresh Freesia, Berry Burst, & Bubble Bath. With a couple die cut flags in Lemon Lolly & Daffodil Delight. 

I hope you enjoyed seeing my card and being inspired to try creating your own Up In The Air Creation. I would love to see what you come up with. Please tag me in any social media post #creativechelsey 

Next up is my talented friend, Barb Pfeffer, . I just know she’ll share something incredible, so enjoy!

Have a creative day,
